COMPOSER FOCUS: MOONDOG

Louis Thomas Hardin, better known as Moondog, is something of an anomoly, even within the incredibly diverse musical environment of the 20th century. To start with, he was an American composer, blind from the age of 16, and could be seen selling his music and poetry on the streets of New York City, dressed in viking clothes. (According to him, his attired helped him avoid comparisons to Christ or a monk - he had long hair and a beard).

COMPOSER FOCUS: WEBERN

Anton Webern was a transformative force in classical music. A late romantic turned atonal composer, his works strandle the line between intense emotional expression and the abstract purity of his almost architectural musical designs. This concert will feature an early string quartet - an expressionist piece - and some of his terse, later atonal works for strings, piano, and voice.

OMPOSER FOCUS: MOZART?

In the popular imagination, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's music is synonymous with classical music itself. Brilliantly crafted and with a tremendous emotional scope, his works have inspired each successive generation of composers.

In this concert, we will explore pieces written in the the 20th and 21st centuries for which Mozart's music was the starting point. Included will be works by Part and Schnittke, as well as new songs (written for this concert) by local singer-songwriter, Mary Bichner. (Her other music can be heard here.)

COMPOSER FOCUS: MARTINU

Bohuslav Martinu was prolific Czech composer, very much influenced by the neoclassical and modernist innovations of Stravinsky, but without losing his own unique folk-inspired voice. Marinu's music is striking for its incredible rhythmic energy, as well as its affecting sense of drama and lyricism. As Martinu was a great composer for string instruments, we will be performing a string quartet, the intense Cello Sonata No. 2, and other, smaller works.

MORE THAN FOUR ON THE PAD

Featuring arrangements and some originals by Tsunenori “Lee” ABE, MT4 will explore the songs of Stevie Wonder, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Adele, Coldplay and so many more. This four-part SATB group blends an attitude of soul with the sharp technique and skill of some well-mastered artistry. Spanning two of the most musical cities in the world, Boston and New York, vocal quartet More Than Four finds inspiration in close harmonies, soaring melodies, and innovative grooves.
